Welcome to Game Over, Cancer!

It's time to tell cancer that it's Game Over!


Game Over, Cancer! is Atlantic Canada's largest console gaming fundraiser! We raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society through many video game related events every year. This year we have teamed up with even more incredible sponsors, to bring the event to a completely new level and raise even more money for cancer research. Come out, play some awesome games, and raise money for a great cause.

Hope to see you all there!
